Book Review: Bitten Shame

            Today's review is on Bitten Shame by Olivia Hardin

Though this second installment had all of the characters we fell in love with, and those we fell in hate with, in book 1, this one focused more on the past and present life of Jill Prescott. In this book we learn how she fell in love, became a vampire, and how she lost the will to live without the one man who changed her life forever.

As the chapters flip from the past to the present, the reader is able to watch the love between Jill and "Doc" develop and grow. We are also able to feel the pain Doc feels when he is forced to change her into a vampire, and the pain Jill feels when Doc is murdered.

Now that their Sire is dead, Jill's only reason to continue living is to help her friend Devan take down the Org. Something that Doc himself had been working on as well. Once that is taken care of, she plans on ending her own existence. What is there worth living for anymore with the love of her life gone anyway?

But Doc's compassion while treating the kept children of the Org had not gone unnoticed, and he was given a great gift. With his passing his gift was passed to Jill, his one true love. Now she must choose what her heart desires the most. Revenge, Freedom, or Love?

I personally liked this installment more than the first. Perhaps it's just the romantic in me. I literally had to force myself not to skip over the "present" day chapters I was so enthralled with Jill's and Doc's love story! I just hope the third book is just as good.
